Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

a defense against an anti-fixed gear rant

I don't ride a fixed gear, but I was stumbling and I came across this. It's a pretty entertaining read. Thought it might be more interesting to others here, though,
